Sunny, Beautiful Fall Day

Today was absolutely gorgeous. It was sunny, no wind, not a cloud in the sky. The kind of day that begs you to do yard work...the kind of day that a thin t-shirt warms you enough if you are working...the kind of day that you might mistake for the end of summer, except the low angle of the sun somehow feels different. It's like summer's last kiss good-bye.

We took a few pictures of Evan with his Autumn Burst maple in the back yard. This tree was a first birthday gift from Grandma & Grandpa Key and Auntie Jen. I thought it would be cute to get a picture of him standing, holding on the the trunk all by himself. Evan had other ideas. I love the last picture of him, surrounded by bright red leaves, intently studying them.

What a great present...I love the autumn colours and the maple changing...

It must be great getting together with Max and having so much to catch up on in person...also great for Evan and Max to form a true friendship.

Love Les and Amélie xx

Dear Evan,
Grandma heard that there is a strong wind coming your way this week, so tell your little tree to hold onto its leaves. I look forward to seeing you this Saturday. Big Hug and see you soon!
Love, Grandma Key
